As a man of Mexican descent, I absolve myself of all responsibility for vermin like this.
Video of University of California, Riverside student Edith Macias stealing fellow student Matthew Vitale’s Trump hat went viral on Thursday and was picked up by Fox News and other right-wing media outlets on Friday.
On Thursday, Macias shared video of herself stealing Vitale’s hat on Facebook and issued a terroristic threat telling her victim he needs to fear for his life and is “not safe” despite having “the cops and politicians on your side.”
Edith Macias thinks she speaks for the downtrodden and “marginalized,” but she only rants from emotion and ignorance and ulterior benevolence. And she’s an ugly sow, at that. And on the subject, why are all SJW antifa females ugly, fat and unsexy as hell? Is there a retributive aspect to their victimization persona? In creating a pall of “equality” and “virtue,” they seek to level out the world’s playing field so the dim and ugly (like them) can have a chance in some grand Robin Hood-esque gesture?
This is not so outlandish a claim by President Trump, despite the collective American wave of Concern-hoopla.
The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.

What we are witnessing in the aftermath of hurricane Maria’s destruction of Puerto Rico (and ensuing infrastructure unraveling) is nothing short of hallway politics. President Trump, regardless of any American effort to assist the island ghetto, is thoroughly fucked because this is a PR war that can never be “won” as long as the MSM and American ignorentsia is allowed to spin its liberal fabrications ad nauseam in a shameless exploitation of the ravages that mother nature can unleash on a small, ineffectual region.
Considering the fact that the United States mainland has experienced two large hurricanes recently, the United States has done a lot to help Puerto Rico, regardless of what the Democratic naysayers spew in order to trigger the avalanche of anti-Trump emotive propaganda.
At least 16 people have died in Puerto Rico in the hurricane’s aftermath, although that number could rise. The island has a population of 3.4 million people, roughly the same as Connecticut. The Trump administration has appointed a three-star general to coordinate the response and waived the Jones Act, a maritime commerce statute that was seen as a hindrance to relief efforts.
Mr. Trump said his critics in Puerto Rico should not depend entirely on the federal government. “They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort,” he wrote. “10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job. The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.”
The U.S. government is nearly quadrupling the amount of federal funding Puerto Rico receives to help impoverished families pay their power bills.
Resident Commissioner Pedro Pierluisi says the Department of Health and Human Services will provide nearly $15 million to the commonwealth starting in January, compared with the $4 million it provided this year.
Pierluisi said Thursday that the additional funds will help as many as 500,000 people. Some 250,000 people in the U.S. territory currently receive help under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
Still, when all is said and done, the shamers win the media war every time because they have the mouth of the MSM speaking for them.
Five days after the Category 4 storm slammed into Puerto Rico, many of the more than 3.4 million U.S. citizens in the territory were still without adequate food, water and fuel. Flights off the island were infrequent, communications were spotty and roads were clogged with debris. Officials said electrical power may not be fully restored for more than a month.
So… A category 4 hurricane has a head-on collision with the small commonwealth and the expectation (entitlement) is that everything should be up and running within 5 days?
This is the solipsistic thinking that perpetuates the paradigm of helplessness and self-pity which Trump finds himself battling in spite of himself. A battle without chance for victory and in which defeat is firmly embossed in his unpopularity among certain segments of the population which find their disdain a convenient vehicle to spout their pet dialogue of Trump the Monster. The whines of the American Left only serve to allow the island commonwealth to prove its status as a thankless welfare hog seeking the teat of the federal government; hurricane Maria was not the cause, but a very illuminating glimpse, into the American-Left-imposed mentality of a debt-ridden island that seeks hand-outs. A powerful hurricane ripped the island to shreds; a more convenient mode by which to shame Trump, the Left could not have dreamed, of ever.
Puerto Rico is a tool of the American Left and if the small island feeds into the liberal welfare paradigm, we must excise them from the American arena. America has enough freeloaders in its own 48 contiguous to perpetuate liberal politics for ages to come. We don’t need another Caribbean NYC to joint the Democratic handout wagon.
On Tuesday evening, a humorous satire video was posted to the Instagram account belonging to Los Angeles police officer, Edgar Verduzco.
According to KTLA, “the video features an animated avatar, wearing a Dodgers shirt, atop a bar counter. The cartoon character sits in a red car, honking the horn, with a message written underneath: “#dontdrinkanddrive.”
A few hours later, another video was posted to Verduzco’s Instagram, apparently at the same location, of a group of people playing a game of Jenga.
A few hours later, at 10:15, a Camaro allegedly belonging to Verduzco (also a boastful fixture of his Instagram account) was driving at a high rate of speed on the 605 Freeway near the suburb of Whittier, east of Los Angeles, when it rear-ended 2 cars, killing all 3 occupants of one. Killed were Maribel and Mario Davila, and their teenaged son, Oscar, who all perished in the resulting fire.
In a tired script that defies the tritest of cliches, 3 lives ended and a 4th ruined. Verduzco was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and vehicular manslaughter.
The Los Angeles police officer who had been arrested following a deadly crash in which alcohol possibly played a role was released from custody on Thursday, according to inmate records.
Edgar Verduzco, 26, left Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles around 5:10 p.m. due to insufficient grounds to file charges, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department inmate database shows.
Earlier in the day, Officer Al Perez with the California Highway Patrol — which is investigating the incident — told KTLA the agency had not yet submitted a formal complaint to the District Attorney’s office and did not expect to before the 48-hour deadline for holding prisoners without a warrant.
Will the historic leniency police receive in such matters play out in this case? That remains to be seen. Verduzco is technically innocent and it is up to the District Attorney to investigate the case and bring appropriate charges based on the office’s findings. The eternally cynical part of me expects Verduzco will get off with a slap on the wrists while the Davila family is torn to shreds. Justice, LAPD-style. Nevertheless, I doubt Verduzco will ever drive an LAPD patrol car again and his badge will most likely become a hollow bedside adornment. And a man who might have had it all will have nothing but bloody hands and a murky future.
We live in treacherous times. Everything is not as it seems and enemies have set seed behind the barrier.
I read about things like this; baffling, startling turns of logic and expectation and it’s obvious our world is accelerating quickly into a whirlpool of despair and conflict. Our society is imploding like a brittle cement building. The earthquake of our times is humongous and undeniable.
The U.S. Army has opened an investigation into West Point graduate Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone for appearing to openly advocate for communism on social media.
Pictures of Rapone in uniform at West Point promoting pro-communism messages spread wildly around the internet Monday, in effect forcing West Point to issue a statement in response. The statement noted the Army has launched an investigation into Rapone’s activities.
“The U.S. Military Academy strives to develop leaders who internalize the academy’s motto of Duty, Honor, Country, and who live the Army values,” West Point said in a statement released Tuesday. “Second Lieutenant Rapone’s actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army. As figures of public trust, members of the military must exhibit exemplary conduct, and are prohibited from engaging in certain expressions of political speech in uniform. Second Lieutenant Rapone’s chain of command is aware of his actions and is looking into the matter. The academy is prepared to assist the officer’s chain of command as required.”
I struggle for words, metaphors, comparisons that will aptly condense that uneasy sensation which permeates my soul when I read each day’s news events.
And the word is molt.
We are experiencing a grand cultural molting of our civilized skin. What will emerge is anyone’s guess. Let your imagination run wild. The shell of antiquity is about to be shed and the birth of a fresh new skin is underway.
